Azerbaijan’s conduct of undeclared, large-scale and offensive military drills isn’t helping prepare the peoples for peace. This is what spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Anna Naghdalyan said during a March 20 press conference.

According to her, the Collective Security Treaty Organization has raised the issue and demanded explanations from Azerbaijan. The same goes for the deployment of a new military unit in Armenia’s borderline zone and the use of a mortar by Azerbaijan. “Nobody should doubt that Armenia and Artsakh are determined to defend themselves and use countermeasures,” Naghdalyan emphasized.
